Note that I didn't mention any mass or cosmological constant. I think you
can have infinite universes with infinite total mass if you balance them
with a sufficient negative cosmological constant - it all ends up zero.

It also shows that my Hell model of course will not work if we assume Hell
to be an independent spacetime with possibly its own geometry...
